the struggle is real

Is it just you?
Or could it be ADHD?

Maybe you’re not getting enough sleep or maybe you’re getting too much sleep. Maybe you’re having a bad day. Again. Maybe people don’t understand your sense of humor. Maybe they don’t get you. Maybe you’ve had too much coffee or sugar and that’s why you can’t sit still. Maybe you didn’t forget to do that thing on that project. Maybe someone else did. Or maybe. Maybe it’s ADHD.

See for yourself

Is it just you or does
your family think you forget/miss/lose a lot?

Maybe you missed a doctor’s appointment. Or two. But that’s okay, right? And so what if you lost your keys. Again times infinity. And what’s the big deal if you didn’t listen to your daughter/husband/wife? You’re busy. Or maybe.

Maybe it’s ADHD.

At home, ADHD is often missed because it's not the setting that people normally talk about when addressing ADHD. Many times ADHD symptoms go unrecognized and ignored. More often than not, they are chalked up to “family stuff” or end of day fatigue.

SYMPTOMS AT HOME MAY INCLUDE:
  • Is often forgetful in daily activities (eg, doing chores, running errands; for older adolescents and adults, returning calls, paying bills, keeping appointments)
  • Often interrupts or has difficulty focusing during conversations (eg, completes people's sentences; can't wait for turn in the conversation; mind seems elsewhere, even in absence of any obvious distraction)
  • Often loses things necessary for tasks or activities (eg, tools, wallet, keys, paperwork, eyeglasses, mobile telephones)
ADHD has 3 core symptoms: inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. These symptoms can affect you in home, social, and work settings.

Do you find yourself apologizing a lot at work?

“Sorry I’m late. Sorry I missed that meeting. Sorry I didn’t get that report done. Sorry I didn’t cover for you like I said I would.” Does this sound familiar? Maybe you’re just working at the wrong place. Or maybe.

Maybe it’s ADHD.

On the job, ADHD can make working more of a struggle than it needs to be.

SYMPTOMS AT WORK MAY INCLUDE:
  • Often fails to give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes at work (eg, overlooks or misses details, work is inaccurate)
  • Often speaks over others during meetings
Nearly 11 Million ADULTS IN THE US are estimated to have ADHD.

Your friends don’t seem to get you.

You missed a birthday. You didn’t keep a promise. You spoke your mind, what’s wrong with that? They just don’t like what you have to say. Or maybe.

Maybe it’s ADHD.

ADHD doesn’t just affect work, it can play a part in all aspects of your life, including things like friendships and relationships. How does ADHD affect you in social settings?

SYMPTOMS IN SOCIAL SETTINGS MAY INCLUDE:
  • Often talks excessively or butts into conversations
  • Has a difficulty maintaining focus during conversations and social interactions
Adults with ADHD may have difficulty in MAINTAINING RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM.

Sometimes people think I can seem a bit aloof and maybe not paying attention but that’s only because I have so much other information coming in, my mind won’t let me focus.
